Barrel cactus fruit are found on barrel cactus; a spherical cacti that can be encountered while wandering the Mojave Wasteland. They usually form in groups, with one large barrel cactus that contains the fruit surrounded by several smaller cacti. Like all other Mojave Wasteland plants, fruit-bearing barrel cacti will eventually grow back after being picked.

It is one of three components used to craft desert salad, and in the Honest Hearts add-on, Homebrewed Nuka-Cola and blood shield.
